“I use the invitation feature to allow my distant clients to view their proposed financial plans from the comfort of their home or office as I guide them through the proposal and tweak the plan. As I listen, I can update the plan in real-time to reflect the various assumptions and asset allocation models. The one-time password feature is invaluable as a security precaution when I access my firm's service from remote locations. Citrix’s white paper on advanced encryption was key to convincing my firm’s technology committee to allow me to utilize this technology.”
